Visual Studio 2010 IntelliSense won’t “Pre-Select” items [fix]

Today i faced a new ide-related problem in VS2010 – IntelliSense stopped “pre-selecting” items.

What i mean with pre-selecting is that normally when i type f.ex. in ASP.NET Web Forms apps code behind:

And hit dot, space etc., i get the following (here i hitted dot):

Suddenly today i started getting this:

IntelliSense’s list actually even looks different than in the first image, but i didn’t realize it at that point. I was just wondering why the following happens when i hit f.ex. dot:

IS didn’t come up with “Response”, but just appended the dot to “Resp”.

Apparently VS team has added new feature in VS2010 – low impact intellisense mode. This mode can be toggled on and off by pressing CTRL-ALT-Space. Of course if you are like me and running VS in environment within VMWare player, then you’ll have to do CTRL-ALT-Space, CTRL-ALT-Space. First “CTRL-ALT-Space” will direct the second “CTRL-ALT”-prefixed command to the environment running inside Player.

Finally a good dark theme for VS2010

Previously used this theme in VS 2008, but it doesn’t look that good on VS 2010. Since i upgraded to 2010 i’ve been looking for a good replacement theme from f.ex. studiostyles.info and stackoverflow.com, but to no avail.

Now, mr. James Jones has made my day(s to come). Here’s a blog entry about the theme he has created and it’s available for download from Google Code.
